I am just familiarizing with it and taming the Mule  :wink:, it's brand new.

Is BR20_2022_04c.bin the latest version?

Anybody can help? I saw back in the thread that in April Adam Tanner was advising for a firmware update but on http://support.bryston.com/downloads/BR-20/firmware/ it seems the latest is BR20_2022_04c.bin released on May 26th, so I just wanted to be sure.

Thanks in advance!

Hi All, how about a "Bryston BR-20 Frequently Asked Questions" thread?

I have one: which file systems are supported for USB drives? exFAT, NTFS, APFS, HFS+? Any preferred one?

What about the folder structure? Is it better to put all album folders in the root or it doesn't matter? Any best practice?

Thanks!

I recently picked up a BR-20 and can't get the streamer working at all. 

    -If I switch to the streamer input, the 'lock' light flashes red on and off and that is it. 
    -If I choose 'streamer info' from the setup menu I get a message that says "IP NOT FOUND!."
    -I cannot connect to it via ethernet, although I was able to connect to it once a few days ago.

Has anyone had similar issues, and can offer advice?  I just got the unit last week and am really looking forward to getting working.  I've reached out to Bryston support via the website, but haven't heard back yet.

Which music service are you using? I guess you connected to the network using a cable and plugged it into the “streaming internet” port, correct?

My intention is to use roon and/or the Bryston software, but I haven’t made it far enough along for that to even be relevant.  I have cables in both ports, but tried just a cable in the streaming port as well.

Will do James. 


Thanks all!

I read somewhere here i the forum that only one port should be plugged in meaning you plug the network cable in the SVC Ethernet OR in the Streaming Ethernet port.

Good luck!

Adam helped me get it all sorted.  Everything is working well now.  Very pleased!

Adam confirmed this.  Although you can connect both Ethernet ports at the same time it's not necessary and can be somewhat detrimental as they share resources.

Hi James,

I found my BR-20's remote control not working last night, I tried replace the battery problem persists, is it the remote needs reprogram or just die?

Thanks.

BR-20 Remote Code

Push and HOLD the CODE button for 5 FULL seconds. When the white LED starts to blink let go of code and then quickly and firmly push D7, D9, D5 in that order.
You should see the white LED blink twice to say it has accepted the code.

I had to do this after replacing the batteries.  Worked fine afterwards.

Been awhile things have just been working the odd power pull but not as often after last update.

I now use my old iPhone XR for Apple Music this allows me to control apple music from my apple watch. Little inconvenient if phone rings for Facetime but livable.
Reason for posting my old iPad 2 circa 2014 is not always syncing with USB input but without power pull my iPhone syncs fine. Lock goes red or song skips occasionally.
Started after latest apple update. 
Anyone else have this? Probably time to pull trigger on new one...
Edit
Doesn’t like my new access point put up older one again and its working again.
Back to the music
